IEBC must go, insists Duale

15 March 2016, 09:44 Arap Yego

Nairobi - National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale has questioned the capacity of the electoral body to hold the upcoming 2017 elections.

Duale, who referred to the just concluded mini-polls in Malindi said the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is ill-equipped to be in-charge of the general elections and called for the reconstitution of the polls body.

Speaking to News24 Tuesday, the lawmaker said he was among leaders who observed the by-election in Malindi Constituency and revealed that he noted serious electoral malpractices in the process.

“I came face to face with serious voter intimidation cases by opposition leaders. Voter bribery was also rife. In one polling station, I saw five people who were not registered as voters in Malindi voting, IEBC clerks and returning officers and the security apparatus were comprised by the opposition,” he explained.

The Garissa Township MP said despite the glaring massive irregularities he and other leaders observed, IEBC did not deem it fit to crack the whip on the offenders, raising serious questions on the credibility of the polls outcome.

“IEBC mishandled the Malindi by-election. I am afraid that if the way they handled the elections is replicated in 2017, the country will degenerate into chaos like the one we had in 2007-2008,” said Duale.

“The best way to avert such crisis is for the entire current IEBC team, commissioners starting with the chairman Isaack Hassan to step aside. I don’t think the 2017 general elections will be free and fair, if the team is at helm of IEBC,”  said Duale.
